www.LoewenTours.com

When homeschoolers want to travel they are the first to do the research and try to plan the perfect trip. Luckily, we've found a tour company that has done the work for us. The Loewens are a husband and wife team from Canada and are well traveled veterans. They have traveled extensively in North America, Japan, and many parts of Europe. They are educators and have designed the tours to be rewarding life experiences, rich and thought provoking, yet a lot of fun. Your student will learn without even realizing it.

The groups for each tour are kept small for one on one attention. This also allows the group to have real European experiences. The Loewens have taken special care to produce an authentic experience. Tour goers will use the train, bus and trams to travel as if you lived there. Each hand selected site will actually be visited and experienced, and time will be spent to take it in and enjoy it. Students will enjoy authentic local food and culture. Homeschoolers will have a one of a kind experience and learn more in one tour than some learn in a lifetime. There are many upcoming tours to choose from. The next two tours are coming up in September and October.

When Margaret S. Emmons visited Jerusalem in 1992, sixteen years ago, she did not foresee that she would later develop a business inspired by her travels.

While in Israel, Emmons picked up a souvenir game, “Jerusalem Picture Card” and brought back to Iowa. She began playing the card game with her grandson and he enjoyed it so much that he soon began to share it with his friends.

“They liked the game so much and learned a lot, it was a good learning method,” Emmons says.

When Emmons realized how much the card game enhanced her grandson’s knowledge of geography, she began to create games of states and cities modeled after the popular classics, Go Fish and Authors. Games featuring American and Canadian destinations became popular with her local elementary and middle schoolers. Next, she was inspired to make a professional game and because of her experiences she chose Africa.
